We at ChiroCareLA in Glendale, CA, understand that accidents happen. A slip, bump, fall, or another sudden trauma has the ability to cause subluxation, a misalignment in your spine. When or if an accident occurs, Dr. Alajajian and his staff are readily available to get you on a personalized treatment plan. While the main goal is to correct the misalignment of your vertebrae and alleviate discomfort, we also work to prevent future subluxations by building up your spinal health.
If you are experiencing subluxation, symptoms include:
- Numbness and tingling
- Limited mobility
- Pain or discomfort
- Degeneration of surrounding muscles, nerves, and bones
Did you know that subluxation is a partial dislocation of the spinal cord? You can probably guess that the pain is no walk in the park. Subluxations are identified through a chiropractic exam, which consists of manual palpation and x-rays. During the manual exam, Dr. Alajajian will check the alignment of your pelvis, joints, and spine. Depending on the severity, treatment options may include medication, rehabilitation, surgery, closed reduction, or a shoulder brace. Leaving subluxation untreated will create more issues for the individual, such as the degeneration of the discs. Your body will try to compensate for subluxation as well, taking on a new, unhealthy shape. Don’t wait to seek treatment! Dr. Alajajian and his staff will help.
